With a new year comes fresh new trends, and of course stunning new haircuts. Jesinta Franklin is a perfect example of this, as she recently debuted a new style that is beyond words. Mark my words, this cut will be HUGE this year. And the talented hands behind this look is no other than the über-cool team at KODA Cutters in Bondi Beach NSW, whose Creative Director I was lucky enough to speak with recently. An editorial stylist for over a decade, Diane Gorgievski is behind some of Australia’s most influential editorial shoots and her vast list of clients include Vogue, Russh, Harpers Bazaar and Elle. Diane regularly works with local celebrity clientele including Rose Byrne, Sarah Murdoch, Jodhi Meares and of course Jesinta, to name but a few.
Diane, thanks for speaking with me. Let me ask, what’s your prediction for hair trends in 2019? “Hair is going edgy – people are coming away from that ‘balayage and tonged look’ and going for something more direct. We are seeing a lot of women going for the scalp bleach / full tint with roots shadow and the riskay cut. Love a pixie or even a bob!”
What’s your favourite cut or colour at the moment? “Love the lived in colour Jesinta Franklin had done this month by our Colour Director Adam Hopkins. So cool and understated.”
Who is your ultimate celebrity muse? “THE MOSS BOSS – she is just everything still to me.”
Any haircare brand you live and die by? “Oribe.”
What’s one thing we can all do for better hair health? “Look after coloured hair – so many women just don’t. If your going to spend on the colour then you need to take home all the stuff that going to keep it in good condition – and just like your skin, be sun smart!”
If you’re close by in Bondi, stop by their stunning space but if you’re like me and a little too far away, enjoy this sneak peek in the KODA Cutters picture-perfect salon.
